I made a little website with pictures of Lilo and email from his as well. Even though we are splitsville we are still good friends. We talk often and he emails too, of course since I have the kids he would probably still call and write even if we WEREN'T good friends!! ;) Anyhow, I made the site to keep family and friends posted since he isn't able to contact them as often.
In response to the site I've recieved several emails from friends of mine who were really touched. They all said that it really brings the war home. For the most part, they don't actually know anyone who is deployed and don't really understand the things the servicemembers are going through. This apparently has helped them feel more connected to this war and more connected to the people who are serving our country. I didn't anticipate that reaction.
Also, just a little disclaimer... I didn't write anything that is "top secret" or confidential. Everything he's written about is news I've seen broadcasted on CNN or the like. I actually thought the camp he's at was kind of a secret, then I saw a map on CNN showing exactly where it was, right down to the name of it and the distance from the nearest major city!!
Anyhow, here's the link: http://pages.ivillage.com/lilospage/ :)
